I want so much more than they've got planned

I picked up some Bernat Roving today, which I think is pencil roving, though it might be just really-loosely-spun singles. Anyway, I started to knit with it, and it's worrisome because as I knit, the yarnrovingwhatever becomes looser and looser, and I'm afraid I'm going to pull it apart.... Is there anything I can do other than 'be really really really careful'?

I think being "really really really careful" pretty much covers it Smiley OTOH, if it does break apart, just overlap the two ends for a couple of stitches worth and keep knitting. It's much stronger with it's knit up.
